Rathasker Stud Phoenix Sprint Stakes 2022 at The Curragh won by Go Bears Go

07 Aug 2022



We were delighted to sponsor the Rathasker Stud Phoenix Sprint Stakes for 2022 at The Curragh. Won by Go Bears Go – trained by David Loughnane for owners Amo Racing. It gave us great joy to present the winning connections with a painting by Marina Hamilton.

David commented, “He’s a terrier and would step into a ring with Mike Tyson — he’s afraid of no one. The longer they come at him the better he is. I’d love to see him over seven.

“At the moment the plan is to head to Kentucky Downs on the 10th of September. There is a Grade 2 over there worth a lot of money over six and a half furlongs and then possibly a tilt at the Foret in October.

“He doesn’t want too long between his races, he gets a bit bored. He wants three weeks maybe four and he loves travelling. This race worked in nicely.”
